Daily Horoscope: Monday, October 2, 2017

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 7 AM to 10:30 AM EDT today. After that, the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Keep your head down and your powder dry today because this is a poor day to ask bosses, parents and VIPs for a favour or for permission or approval for something. Their answer will be, “Talk to the hand!” Just carry on – business as usual.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might have increased responsibilities today with children, social situations or sports. Yes, this is a burden; and you can’t even get help from someone older or in a position of power. (Like what’s with that?) Be patient. Handle things on your own; you’ll be fine.


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today your ruler Mercury is at odds with stern Saturn, which strains your relationships with partners and close friends. Knowing this ahead of time – don’t push the river. Don’t ask for favours. Don’t be demanding. Just take care of your own sandbox.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It’s easy to fall into worry mode today. (Join the club. We number millions. We’ve got T-shirts and jackets that cost too much.) Most of the things anyone worries about never happen! Factoid. “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might feel a money crunch today. Don’t worry – this is temporary. Because I know that you feel optimistic about your life – and hey – in the coming year, you’re going to create your dream home! And family members will be generous to each other and supportive. Relax.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your plans might meet with obstacles today, especially at home or with an older family member (like a parent). But hey, this is peanuts in the grand scheme of things. It’s nothing you can’t handle. Let go of the problem areas and work on what you can get done because three planets are in your sign giving you an edge!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s curious. The Sun is in your sign, which is an empowering influence that occurs for four weeks only once every year. You can even attract favourable situations and people to you now. Nevertheless, today you feel vaguely worried about something. Compartmentalize it. Go with what works.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A friend might criticize you today or be difficult to deal with. This is disheartening and probably annoying. But nothing is perfect in our relationships with anyone because life doesn’t work that way. Be forgiving. Don’t get hung up about this. Phffft!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a poor day to make your pitch to a boss, authority figure or parent. Don’t ask for favours, permission or approval. Postpone that for another day – maybe another week. (Although Wednesday looks pretty good.) See how that works.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might find it easy to study today because you are focused on facts and serious situations. However, anything to do with travel, the media, publishing, medicine and the law will feel stuck. There will be obstacles. Just take these in your stride because Capricorns are not wusses. “No pain, no gain.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Discussions about shared property, taxes, debt or jointly-held resources might discourage you today. You can’t make headway. Others might disagree with you. Hey, set these matters aside until at least Wednesday. Work on something else. Simple.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Keep things light today because discussions with bosses, parents and close friends will not be easy. In fact, they might discourage you. Therefore, don’t even go there. Focus on something else and accomplish as much as you can.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Sting (1951) shares your birthday today. You love beauty and harmony in your surroundings. You are friendly and have strong values of justice and fairness. This is a year of building constructing and creating solid foundations. You will want to simplify things to channel your energy in one direction. Exercise is important. Take up any physical discipline to help ground you. Hard work and effort will pay off this year!
